All about the trip
Our guide will pick you up from Ain Sokhna Port next to your cruise ship. We will start your tour at Babylon fortress which was established by the Roman emperor Trajan In the 2nd century AD. One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to Ben Ezra Synagogue which is located on the spot where Moses as an infant was supposedly left in the basket. Our next visit will be to the Church of St. Sergius and Bacchus which is built over a cave where the Holy family is said to have taken shelter after fleeing to Egypt. You will also have a chance to admire the Hanging Church, one of the oldest churches in Egypt. Next stop on the tour is a visit to the Greek Orthodox Monastery and Church of St. George.
Coptic Museum, which is also a part of our tour schedule, offers the most unique collection of Egyptian Christian antiques.
We will end the tour by visiting Mosque of Amr ibn al-As, the first and oldest mosque built in Egypt and Africa.
We then have an option to visit traditional bazaars and then we will drive you back to your cruise ship 2 hours before your departure time. If time permits, we can make some photo stops in Ain Sokhna Port.What Wikipedia Says
